Odd that it took me this long to see this, a minor epic concerning the nexus of power and art during the apogee of the 30s labor movement. Perhaps I am inflating my grade because I am particularly fascinated with Italian Futurists, the young Orson Welles and the WPA, but this is a very enjoyable film with a dynamite cast. John Cusack as a young Nelson Rockefeller and John Turturro as the young actor in the Mother of All Barton Fink-feeling scripts are particular standouts. Hats off to the great Fellow Traveller Tim Robbins for making one of the most coherent Robert Altman films of our time.
